Pennsylvania State University Reviews

My experience at Penn State was much different than what my counselors in high school told me it would be. PSU will promise you the moon and the stars in regard to education and connection. What I received over four years was nothing less than a mountain of debt and a piece of paper that is no longer sought after in my field. The projected costs of each semester were significantly less than what I actually had to pay; the bursar and registrar officers are constantly in disagreement as to what goes on and how to do things properly (and it's the same in the career center as well--you may as well get a monkey to write a resume for you); not to mention that the education itself felt more like I had entered the 13th grade than any actual college classes. And, let's not forget about how sexual assaults are considered nonexistent. Security? What security? Penn State has entirely lost its integrity and excellence as a prestigious university: it is a cash cow for football and a dance marathon that risks the lives of its students and faculty under the guise that it helps pediatric cancer patients. Penn State is a poor excuse for a place of academia.
